Château Angélus 2003

St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)

Excellent levels and appearance

58% Cabernet Franc, 42% Merlot Only 25 hl/hectare made and the second highest proportion of Cabernet Franc they have ever put in the blend. Incredible exotic, even caramel nose, with a hint of figs. Glorious in the mouth. Very ripe grapes. Spices and orange zests. So "sweet" and inky. A complete one-off. So succulent. Another bottle had an immensely spicy nose and irony/fruity melting ripeness on the palate. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 98
